Wade was pumping em up over Roy right at the top of the lane. Hibbert was too slow to react and get up on wade at the top of the lane cause he was fearful of wade blow by's. so wade just owned him with pullups right at the sweet spot below the FT line. Roy had no chance.
Some blame goes to Lance... but thats Roys job to protect the paint... not just stand under the rim and hope wade came to him... wade knew where to attack... if roy stepped up wade would blow by.
thats a fact and anyone with it on dvr can back that up all day long. like i said... theres ways to beat roys rim protection and the elite know exactly how to do it. it will always be exposed in a 7 game series.. and when it does... whats roy got to fall back on... except the bench.
huge waste of 20% cap and this window for championship contention. when its gone buh bye. **** it... roy aint gettin paid next go round and if he does... it wont be by Bird.
ive made bold statements before.. and proven to be right. i was one of the few.. in fact the only i ever read "cautiously" suggest trading Lance last year at the all star break. i say cautiously because i adhere to the philosophy dont **** up a good thing.
but i wanted return on Lance and in the grand scheme of things as i said then and will say now.. had this Franchise lifted one BANNER by now.. the best long term move was deal Lance and get a lottery pick back for him... or Affalo woulda been nice from orlando i think it was.
either way.. i got **** on by several for even suggesting it. just like i got **** for stating Bird will win GM and lead this team to 50 wins for 5 seasons.
now i get **** on for stating roy is overrated and overpaid. such is life i suppose on PD.
